    Hello, I'm trying to find diafine within the EU (tired of long shipping times and parcels getting caught in customs). Does anybody have a lead? I so far found Mrcad.co.uk, anybody ordered from that firm? What fixer is recommended for diafine?

    On a separate note, does anybody have any good ebay sellers for Lucky or shanghai in bulk (50 or so rolls..)? Era 4x5 sheets also of interest.

    (German company also shipping abroad, bought here before, went very well - they use UPS which is extremely fast (<24h from Germany to my home address in the Netherlands)

    Due to the fact a water change is used after Diafine bath B (it has a very high pH) you need a fixer who works without stop bath. Especially the alkaline/neutral odorless type fix can have a problem with this so I recomment a classical acid fix type.

    Best regards,
